From Fender – 

Classic Tele look and tone! The American Deluxe Telecaster solidbody electric guitar sports a compound-radius fretboard that's perfect for both rhythm and lead roles, plus a contoured heel that opens up those upper frets. Its lightweight alder body is comfortable, even after you've been playing for hours. 

A duo of N3 noiseless pickups gives you those Telecaster tones you love - bell-like and chimey, the way you want 'em - but without noisy hum. 

Fender's N3 Noiseless Tele pickups give the American Deluxe Telecaster guitar the classic spank and twang of traditional single-coil pickups, without the dreaded 60-cycle hum. Built with a stacked set of Alnico V magnets, N3 Noiseless pickups provide you with the same level of noise cancellation you'd expect out of humbuckers. But thanks to Fender's cutting-edge design, N3 Noiseless pickups also hit your amplifier with the classic Tele warmth most stacked dual-coil pickups are missing. 

The Fender American Deluxe Telecaster packs a wide range of tones thanks to its S-1 Switch. In the middle pickup position, this allows you to switch between series and parallel pickup wirings. Normally Teles are wired in parallel, but the series setting gives you a fatter, rounder tone that's like a humbucker with the added bite of a single coil pickup. 

The American Deluxe Telecaster is incredibly responsive to its tone control, giving you the flexibility to fine-tune your tone. But turn the no-load tone controller all the way up to 10, and the tone circuit is actually removed completely from the signal path. You'll hit your amplifier with a hotter output and brighter tone than you'd get with normal tone circuits when you plug in with the American Deluxe Telecaster.’

This is a very nice American Deluxe Tele in excellent, almost new condition, and it plays as good as it looks. This is a guitar you would pick up and use at every gig because it plays so easily and covers so much ground. It has many pickup combinations which will allow you to find that unique Tele tone that speaks for you. 

Everything on the guitar appears to be original. There are no cracks, repairs, or issues. The neck is straight with no issues and plays comfortably in all positions. The original frets are in excellent condition with no wear showing. 

This guitar has been well looked after and presents in fine condition. It has been played sparingly and shows only some very minor swirling on the pickguard and a few tiny dents on the back of the neck but nothing offensive. 

Weight is 8.62 lbs 

This Tele is a fine example of the best of classic design meeting modern updates in a nice package that is wonderfully familiar yet appealingly contemporary. 

Comes in its moulded Fender hard case in good condition.
